5.0 out of 5 stars I love this album, 28 Sep 2008
This review is from: Smoke In The Shadows (Audio CD)
I love this album! A combination of sleazy seduction and sinister threat, Lydia Lunch croons her way through a noir-ish collection of songs that will thrill and scare you in equal measures.
After all, who else could utter the line "You know the only way you're leaving me is in the trunk of a car" and make it sound sexy?

5.0 out of 5 stars Blood extracted from the tracks, 16 Aug 2010
Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles "FIST" (London) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Smoke In The Shadows (Audio CD)
A sanguine deeply cynical tour de force as Lydia purrs over a soundtrack of gently swaying noir rhythms with her insights gleaned from blood extracted from the tracks. Tackling the same black and white suit, waiting for the smoking gun of her dreams to clear away the pipe dreams. Lydia pursues an avenue last travelled 30 years earlier by Clock DVA.

The sounds are jazz chaos, less rock and prerolled, now scattered with smatterings of new york dance. She sings ,the songs of bawdiness whilst the world goes Gagaga Lydia now realises she should have patented the moves.

Lauren Bacall, Barbara Stanwick, Mae West, Ava Gardner brought into the 21st century cinemanscope. Love is murdered for never bringing the relief it promised. Instead only the sweat and musk of a body entwined in a frenzy of conjoined moments before the alienation of life pours into the cracks in between the frission. Leaving the moment as a memory forever fading into the universe.

This is a very good album drawing on a panoply of honed experience rather than directly confrontational (Spoken Word) or inwardly despairing (13/13). This takes the sultry moments of Queen of Siam and just extends them like rubber limbs into another space.

Sweet it aint but there again locked in the crazy arms of lust this finds a place at 3am on the stereo.
